In the morning, make your own way to the MRT Shilin Station to meet your guide.
A few minutes walk takes you to your first destination, the Kuo Yuan Ye Museum of Cake and Pastry. Learn to make Taiwanese pastry during a 2.5-hour hands-on class that results in a tasty pineapple cake.
Continue with your guide by MRT to Xin Beitou Station. Start with a Japanese-style ramen lunch at Manlai Hot Spring Ramen, a popular spot that sometimes has a line but is worth the wait. Choose a main course of either kimchi ramen, original ramen, miso ramen, or soy sauce ramen. The ramen is accompanied by barbecued pork.
Next, walk to the nearby Beitou Hot Spring Museum, which was built in 1913 during the period when Taiwan was under Japanese rule. Hear about Beitou's hot spring culture as you stroll around Beitou Hot Spring Park and stop at the Beitou Library, which was built with eco-friendly construction in 2006.
Wind down your tour with a relaxing soak in a private room at the Sweet Me Hot Spring Resort. Afterward, your guide returns you to the MRT Xin Beitou station to end your tour.
